School Profile

South Hampstead High School aims to open doors, hearts and minds. We welcome girls aged 4 to 18 from across London and focus on enabling all our pupils not just to succeed, but to thrive – intellectually and personally.

South Hampstead is a forward-looking school, empowering girls to prepare for life and work in a rapidly changing world. We place great emphasis on bringing in the outside world, engaging with the local community and fostering a culture of kindness and curiosity. Throughout their time here, pupils benefit from a huge range of academic enrichment opportunities – lectures, competitions, charity work, expeditions – that combine to ignite a genuine joy in learning.

Excellent academic results place us comfortably amongst the country’s top schools, and our pupils leave us for some of the most prestigious universities in the country and worldwide – but there is so much more to an education here than the girls’ headline achievements. We believe that involvement in school life is a key factor in our pupils’ happiness. But it’s not just about taking part; we aim to instil in pupils a sense of purpose, pride and determination and the belief that they can compete on the biggest of stages. The 21st century is a time of unique opportunities and challenges; we have a critical role to play in preparing our young women to live and thrive, work and lead in tomorrow’s world.
